I have a simple problem that I can't seem to find a solution to. I have a datafile that consists of a matrix of 3 columns which I want to import into Mathematica. All I can find in Wolfram's book is the command ReadList, which reads in the file starting with element 1 of column 1 and moves to element 1 of column 2, and so on. When RecordLists is set to True, it will organize the file into a set of sublists which correspond to the rows of the matrix. I want sublists that correspond to the columns. Can anyone please tell me how to get a columnar organization?
